Thanks for your help!
In the video set-up you will have choices like 480/720p/1080i/1080p and 'pass-through' . You can try the 1080p and see what you think, let your tv do it (pass through) or have it upscaled from your sat/cable box and then 'pass through' to see if your cable/sat box is best. You will not have to suffer a worse picture by going through an AVR. More than likely unless you have a very critical eye you won't see a difference among any of them.
